I thought it would be appropriate to link to this article that first confirmed the films were in production and listed the voice cast:

Troy Baker

Jensen Ackles

Naya Rivera (Could she get a tribute in the film?)

Titus Welliver

David Dastmalchan

Jim Pirri

Amy Landecker

Matthew Gray Gubler

Katee Sackhoff

Fred Tatasciore
A two-part animated adaptation of Batman: The Long Halloween was announced for Summer and Fall of 2021, respectively.

Sources: IGN's Superman: Man of Tomorrow panel, at the 44:15 minutes mark.

IGN article.

Stay tuned for further updates!

Very disappointed. Was hoping for a third 60's Batman film. Yes. Yes. I know it's impossible with Adam gone, but those are the kind of superhero films I enjoy. That or more Lego ones. I enjoy the tongue in cheek ones.

Well, those films fell outside of the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line anyway, so I wouldn't have expected a new one to be announced at the Superman: Man of Tomorrow Panel. And, yes, another one is very unlikely without Adam West to voice the lead.

While I'm not exactly a fan of Loeb, this is one of the last classics Batman and DC fans have pined over being adapted. If the runtime is on the longer side, like in the 80 minute range, that should give them leeway for a decent adaptation.

I'm also curious what kind of art style is going to be used - strict Tim Sale style, quasi Tim Sale, something different.

WB should skip the summer release and release the full "deluxe" movie in the fall
They never will.

Between this and the JSA movie, it'll be interesting to see if there's a house style to the Lukic films going off from Man of Tomorrow or if each film will have it's own distinct look/designs.

I'm always hopeful they go back to distinct looks again. Long Halloween is a strong contender, imo.

I'm very curious how the art style is gonna be. I feel Tim Sale's artwork for the comic is very ugly, but it works somehow, and it gives off a very cool vibe. But I definitely don't want that same look translated into animation. I remember the Joker looking like he had 987 teeth or something.

What was the last movie that really tried to match the art style of the story they were adapting?

I hope they at least keep some of the retro costumes. I don't think we've ever seen Catwoman's purple costume in animation :).

John R. Dilworth should take the job.

RBG? Screw you, 2020.
For those of you upset over Steven Universe Future's Emmy loss, let me assure you that Emmys are worthless. David E Kelly, one of the the worst writers I've ever seen, and Murphy Brown, one of the the worst sitcoms I've ever seen, have shelves full of them, and David Lynch and Joss Whedon have none.
I also wish a happy 57th birthday to Dan Povenmire. He's worked on Rocko's Modern Life, Catdog, Family Guy, Hey Arnold, and SpongeBob. He also co-created Phineas And Ferb and Milo Murphy's Law.
I wish a happy 35th birthday to Mairghread Scott. She's worked on many projects like Ultimate Spiderman, Kaijudo, Transformers Rescue Bots, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Marvel Rising, Justice League Action, Wonder Woman Bloodlines, and more.
